Ready for probing and scanning
Attaching a stylus to the Multi-Sided Probe’s (MSP) precalibrated, multi-faceted LED target configuration provides a lightweight, highly repeatable measurement probe with an unlimited range of motion free from directional limitations. Probe configurations can be quickly changed using the integrated Renishaw autojoint adaptor.

K-Scan MMDx (optional)
The K-Scan MMDx is a walk-around scanning solution combining the digital ModelMaker MMDx laser scanner with the portable K-series optical CMM. K-Scan is ideally suited for on-site 3D digitizing tasks requiring minimum setup and fast results. Operating the scanner with a laser stripe width up to 200mm is easy and efficient. The 6m working range of the optical CMM is more than sufficient to take measurements in and around a full vehicle. The dense point clouds that are acquired can be graphically analyzed in Focus software, or in 3rd party packages.
The K-CMM system is supplied with a portable tripod with a lightweight rigid construction. The inclusion of height adjustability, variable pan and tilt angle and integrated Quickfix adaptor for easy mounting of the Optical Tracker ensure excellent flexibility and robustness for shop-floor measurement requirements.

||360° pan, ±10° tilt
|Footprint adjustment (diameter)
||840 mm to 1220 mm
Dynamic referencing (optional)
The initial alignment of a work piece is monitored by three LEDs mounted directly on the part. The Optical Tracker-to-part position and orientation is constantly tracked and updated, avoiding the need for leap-frogging to extend the measurement volume or measure from a different direction. This technology make it possible to measure parts that move or are subject to vibration with the same level of accuracy as if they were rigidly fixtured.
K-CMM multi-measurement (optional)
Two or more K-CMM Optical Trackers can be linked together to form a unified measurement volume with a single co-ordinate system. Whether the objective is to enlarge the measurement zone for very large parts or assemblies, or to provide unobscured views of complex parts from all sides, K-CMM Multi’s flexible configuration means the solution can be tailored to many different measurement applications.
Dynamic measurements (DMM) (optional)
Using the K-CMM with the DMM (Dynamic Measurement Machine) option allows tracking of rapid and complicated trajectories of multiple objects with outstanding accuracy. DMM employs the K-CMM Optical Tracker to track LED targets defining key points of interest. This ability to track 3D and 6DOF measurements changes with respect to time ensures the K-CMM with DMM option can provide a powerful and comprehensive toolset for advanced motion analysis and dynamic measurement.
